Do you have a shealth condition or allergy (ex: gluten intolerance) that requires you to have a special nutrition plan?
I'm not allergic to anything but I cut gluten out of my diet on a regular basis since it decreases my energy level.

Do you follow a specific diet (ex: vegetarian, paleolithic etc…). If so, describe it and explain how is it benefiting you?
My diet consist of whole foods including protein, fats, and carbohydrates. I eat mostly eggs, fish, and chicken for protein; coconut oil, olive oil, nuts, and avocados for fat; and yams, rice, oatmeal, gluten-free bread, some fruits and vegetables for carbs.

Do you supplement daily with nutrients like vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, amino acids etc…?
Yes, I take vitamins, minerals, fish oils, turmeric, HMB, and BetaTOR.

What’s your pre-workout/competition nutrition and hydration plan?
I eat plain chicken breast and a yam for my pre-workout meal and supplement with BetaTOR, BETA, and CITRULLINE or on warmer days prior to Jiu Jitsu I'll drink CORE. The combination of protein and slow digesting carbs gives me the energy I need for training. I also take supplements for energy and recovery.

What’s your during workout/competition nutrition and hydration plan?
I only drink water during my workouts.

What’s your post-workout/competition nutrition and hydration plan?
I supplement with CORE after Jiu Jitsu and water only after strength and conditioning. I eat another balanced meal of protein and carbs such as eggs and gluten free toast or whitefish and rice.

Do you compete in different types of events (ex: different distances or formats)? If so, is your nutrition/hydration plan different for each event?
I only compete in Jui Jitsu.

Any other nutrition/hydration secrets you’d like to share?
I eat low fat meals before and after training. It helps me stay lean while still getting  adiquite energy from the fats during training. The other meals I eat throughout the day are higher in healthy fats.
